Indian Outrage. It is with
feelings of sorrow that we record
the death of Mr. William Fannin,
a young gentleman of this place,
who was killed bv an Indian in
Russell county, Ala. on Sunday
last. Mr. Fannin left here on the
morning of that day, in company
with a gentleman by the name of
Comer, and after proceeding on
theirjoumey some seven or eight
miles beyond Fort Mitchell, on
the Alabama road, were fired on
by two Indians of the Uchee tribe.
The ball of one striking Mr. F.
on the left breast entered the re
gion of the heart; he fell from his
horse anil immediately expired.
Mr. Comer was unhurt, ami
turning to the Indians, two in
number, inquired what they
meant. They made no reply, but
commenced reloading their rifles,
which they again discharged after
Mr. C. had left the spot and re
turned some two hundred yards.
Mr Comer, after coming a mile
or two in the direction of this
place, met a company of travel
lers, who, with him, went back to
the scene of the murder, where
they found Mr. Fannin dead, and
robbed of every thing but Ids
clothing, some part of w hich was
torn, seemingly done in the act
of robbing him. Mr. Fannin was
a young man. 1 8 or 20 years old,
(brother of J. J. Fannin, who died
in this place a few weeks ago,) of
modest and retiring manners, and
by bis amiable disposition bad
endeared himself to all that had
the pleasure of his acquaintance.
We feel as we trust we ought, all
the sorrow for the affliction of his
friends and numerous relatives,
with which this second dispensa
tion of providence lias, in a few
short iverks, tilled alike their
hearts and our own.

Ar. V. Transcript.
Jl Villain Clutched. Some
three weeks ago a stranger of fine
appearance, considerable intelli
gence and prepossessing manners,
arrived at one of our Hotels by the
Southern Slage. He very quick
ly made it known that he was a
dealer in tobacco, and that he
wished to purchase a large quanti
ty of thai article. He professed
to be originally from the Island
of Cuba, hut immediately from
New Orleans, at which latter
place he stated, he was engaged
in business with a partner, whose
name was Castillo, his own being
Clagget. He spent some eight or
ten days with us, and succeeded
in exciting high expectations.
He occasionally conversed wilh
Ihe officers of our Hanks, and
spoke of checks expected from
the Dranch of the U. States Bank
at New Orleans, on the Branch at
Richmond. He was very po
litely told that his checks tvould
be collected for him without
charge, and then paid to him.
He, however, determined it was
best to advertise for 500 to 1000
hhds. tobacco, and visit Milton,
N. C. and other adjacent places oil
nusmess, before he commenced
end he hired a horse and saddle
from one of our citizens, borrowed
a pair of saddle bags from the bar
of the hotel, and departed.
The succedingday at noon, an
other stranger from the west by
the name of Ship, arrived in town,
in pursuit of the renowned Tobuc
co Merchant, under the promise
of a reward of 200 dollars for his
apprehension. It now appeared
that he was a sort of an itinerant
slight of hand dealer in variou
hocus pocus arts, being so gifted
by nature, as to be able to turn his
genius lo any sort of business that
promised gain. We learnt from
his pursuer that he had by his
ingenuity succeeded in swindling
the citizens of Memphis of up
wards ol 2000 dollars. From
that place he proceeded to Win
chester, Ten. where his pursuer
tirst became acquainted with
him. He there suve out that hp
had retired from business, and
wished to settle a stock farm in
that neighborhood. While there
he appropriated to himself several
valuables, such as a fine gold
watch, a horse, &c. without al
lowing the proprietors thereof
any adequate quid pro quo. He
then styled himself James James.
He assumed at different places
five or six different names.
It now became evident, that
bis object here was to swindle the
Banks out of a few thousands of
their cash; but being disappointed,
he decamped. He only tarried
about three hours in Milton, but
staid long enough lo raise the
price of tobacco one dollar in the
hundred. He pretended there,
he was going south to Caswell
Court House; but by a circuitous
route got round to the north and
pushed for Halifax Court Housej
where he arrived Friday night. I
He then sold his horse and saddle
for S46, and prepared to take the
stage for the east on Sunday mor
ning. But in the Stage arrived
an Irishman who had travelled in
company with Mr. Ship, and
recognizing him as the individu
al pursued by Ship, had him ar
reted, and when Mr. Ship reach
there on Sunday, he found him
snugly lodged in jail.
Justice, if not Law. At a
late Hastings Court in Williams
burg, Va. a case of assault and
battery was decided undter the
following circumstances. The
Flaintiff was brother to the De
fendant's wife, and brought suit
for damages sustained by a severe
beating inflicted on him by De
fendant. On the trial it was
proved that Plaintiff had whipped
his sister, which occasioned the
castigation he received from the
Defendant. The Jury, after an
absence of ten minutes, brought
in a verdict of not guilty as to the
Defendant, but ordered the
Plaintiff to receive 39 lashes,
and the costs of suit to be paid by
Plaintiff's counsel, which sentence
was immediately carried into
effect. The law of the case we
presume, will be found in the
second section of "Lynch's
0Cr"It is remarked in the Philadel
phia Gazette that a daily paper
is principally dependent for its ex
istence from the income derived
from advertisements. Many per
sons no doubt suppose when they
pay $10 a year for a daily paper,
that the publisher derives a con
siderable profit from their sub
scriptions. So far from this be
ing the case, there is not a single
paper in this country that could
be sustained by its subscription
list alone. In some cases, thou
sands of dollars must be con
tributed from the advertisement
fund, to make up the deficiency
on the other account Alex. Gaz.
An Original Anecdote. A
short time since as the mail stage
was going on a very dark night
from Boston to Portsmouth, the
driver was alarmed by the cry
of ''Oh Lordy! we are kilt every
soul of us!" The driver jumped
off his box, and found that he had
driven into a cariole, demolished
it, and 'spilt' an Irishman and two
women. The driver, somewhat
enraged that the gallant Hibernian
should keep the middle of the
road, gave him a pretty severe
lecture, and concluded by asking
him if he did not see the lights on
the stage? "Yes, and to be sure
and 1 did, and I drov right be
twane them.' Portland Mv.

interesting account ofa ceremony

'Intelligence has been receiv
ed, that Jenkins, (one of the bel
ligerents in the destructive and
sanguinary war, at present carry
ing on almost within our doors,)
has received from Kins a
subsidy ol five hundred men, com
pletely armed and equipped for
African warfare. Our informant
who was at Jenkin's when the
reinforcement arrived, says, they
were accompanied by the largest
bullock, he remembers having
seen in Africa; a present from
their King to Jenkins, with the
following very singular injunc
tion, an injunction truly Alrican,
and has reference to a custom pre
vailing among them, expressive
of their determination to reject all
conciliatory overtures. , The in
junction was, that the bullock
must not be sold for I obacco
rum, or any thing else but killed
in the centre of Jenkin's Town;
the blood sprinkled throughout
the Town; and a piCe of the flesh
to be eaten by every man that in
tends to fight. What secret en
ergy there is, in the Sprinkling,
or blood or flesh, other than the
strength it yields to the muscles
of the human animal, I am not
enough ofa philosopher to divine.
Perhaps though a secret virtue has
its residence in the blood and
flesh of the beast, and by sprink
ling and deglution is transfused
through the souls of ihe doughty
warriors; perhaps it acts as an
amulet, and transmutes the balls
of the adversary lo war, or charms
them harmless to ihe feet of the
beef eaten warrior;
A little knowledge of African
diplomacy and political etiquette,
forbids us to anticipate the cessa
tion of hostilities within any short
period. Jenkins seems confident
of success in the event of a gen
eral engagement. Our informant
says he will not listen to any thing
like a treaty, and declares that
Boatswain feels himself bound by
an engagement, only so long as
adherence is strictly compatible
wilh his interest.
